110-130 stretch, high cap' differences?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I was in the process of getting together all the parts I needed to stretch a 110 to 127/130 and building a high cap double cab pick up. Simples, or so I thought!!!, got all the bodywork together(just need a roof panel, if anyone has a cheap one?) And an excellent rolling chassis to chop and stretch.However having measured the bodywork/trial fit it, it appears to me that I will need to stretch it by 32 inches!!!!??? And not the 17 inches I was believing. This leaves me with a question/problem, are the body panels, ie. Second row doors and high cap pick up bodies unique to the 130? I've bought doors/chills/B posts from a 110 CSW and a high cap body off I was told a 110/130 but when I add them all together comes to 142inches????? Which seems a tad long! Any help or advice gratefully received!

I think you will find you have a tub off a 110 hicap not a 130 double cab. the 110 hicap tub has quite abit infront of the rear axle a 130 hi cap tub barely goes forward of the rear axle

As already said, the 130 does not have a hi cap body but a shorter pick up bed.

If you want double cab and hi cap body then you will have to stretch it to nearly 150"

A friend has already done it and it looks a beast! Turning circle of a battleship though!

130 rear load body is just a shotened version of the 110 hi cap body. front end of the load body was changed to fit a 127/130 chassis

Iirc 110 is 9" longer in front of the wheel arches, you can shorten them but it's a bigger job than it looks. I'd stretch the chassis more, although you will need a custom prop.
